Getting ready to clean the parts of our C4 tranny and everyone and everything I've read says to use brake cleaner. What is so special about tranny fluid (er...that sounds too wierd, especially living so close to San Francisco) I mean transmission fluid which requires brake cleaner fluid?

Brake cleaner leaves very little residue. Thorough cleaning.
But then again so does laquer thinner.

It will be intresting to hear what others say.

All I can find is brake cleaner in aerosol cans. How the heck are you suppose to clean things using that?

Hi Craig
Actually that's what I like about bc the best. It'll get into the corners, etc. I try to find it at some of the local "parts" places on sale and I buy 4 or 5 cans really cheap.

Actually I use regular parts cleaner. Then to finish up I use brake cleaner or lacquer thinner to blow off any residue.
